Comments: 16, on the topic: Announcement: 7Artisans UFO Lens 18 / 6.3

  • Fantomas

    He's some kind of scary. Its appearance evokes the feeling of a failed homemade product.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Pinhole overgrown

  • Eugene

    It’s not clear what the potential benefit of such a lens is. Just for the sake of compactness?….

    • Arkady Shapoval

      lens cover, lightweight, compact

  • Michael

    Perhaps the depth of field will be very deep with such a shallow entrance hole, but except for the "makrushnikov" it will not please anyone :)

    • Max

      6.3 without the ability to turn on any mackerel will not please for sure. As well as 28 mm FR. I understand this crap is made exclusively for hipsters.

      • Victor

        This crap is made obviously for those who want to put a cropped Sonya with a lens in their pocket at any cost, and 16 / 2.8 is too big)))

        • Victor

          But for $ 70 it is better to buy a native 16 / 2.8 on a car in a “fly not sitting” state than this rubbish))

          • Arkady Shapoval

            16 / 2.8 is valid in the region of $ 100 used. and at the same time he is really a very functional kid, I even wanted to leave myself after the review

    • Trueash

      With such a FR, the camera will need to rest the ant on its head :)

    • B. R. P.

      Will delight. Hyperfocalists. Cartier-Bressonov from the plow. Olik has a similar 15mm f / 8 CapLens and someone else.

  • Victor

    Whoever will solve the riddle of the century - why the Chinese needed to put Roman numerals from one to twelve on the frame - will receive a prize :)

    • Andrei

      In order to remove the lens, insert the clockwork into the finished dial.

    • Trueash

      The clock must be riveted in the next basement

  • Sergei

    And why make this lens cover (super pancake) with a focal length of 18 mm.
    While repeating the whale zoom (at the short end).
    It would be more interesting to make this refinement wider (about 14 mm or so).
    With the same aperture of 6,3, a good hyperfocal landscape could be made, and demand would have increased.

    • Novel

      Maybe just in order not to carry a whale with you for a wide angle?
